An Pedestrian’s Entertainment Editor, and an entertainment reporter for almost a decade, I can tell you that U.S. site Variety is one of the quintessential sources for film, television, music and any other celebrity news (after us, of course).

So when they rolled out a list of 10 problematic films they believe need to have warning labels attached to them, I definitely thought it was worth echoing that list to our local readers.

The piece is called 10 Problematic Films That Could Use Warning Labels and it’s in response to HBO Max quietly pulling Gone With The Wind from its library for its depiction of black people.

Catch their list below:

Head here to suss out their reasons for wanting warning labels for each one, with reasons ranging from racism to insensitivity towards the disabled.

But what’s funny is, the way that I was alerted to this list wasn’t merely from its being published, but from the heap of backlash that has ensued from folks who are anti the whole thing, including actor James Woods and politician Ted Cruz.

On the other hand, there were punters who agreed with the sentiment of the article, such as the following person who also took issue with the betrayal of disabled people in Me Before You.
